The CPE team is continuing to smooth out the details for November’s Fall Fest Accounting Conference. Because of the size of the conference and the layout of the venue, we are encouraging those who are planning to attend to please register and pick out sessions as soon as possible.
With 185 registrations so far, Fall Fest is already our biggest conference to date! But beyond that, Fall Fest is the opportunity to get know your peers at Entertainment Night and win some outstanding prizes (golf cart, anyone?!). With board games, trivia, music, food and booze, we knew we couldn’t put on our largest conference ever without a killer party! If you are only interested in the fun, give us a call at 803.791.4181 to register for Entertainment Night only.
